Good Country Music Songs for the Jukebox in a DC Bar

Hey, Barnum and Bailey, can you use another clown?

I’m going to put a bar in my car and drive myself to drink.

There’s no use running if you’re on the wrong road.

You can’t make a heel toe the line.

I wouldn’t take you to a dog fight even if I thought you could win.

It wouldn’t be so bad if it hadn’t been so good.

I’ve closed my eyes to the cold hard truth I’m seeing.

You don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here.

—From a 1980 Washingtonian piece about good country music song titles; the list was created by Larry Sons and Doug Todd. At the time, Sons was a Dallas advertising executive and Todd was public relations director of the Dallas Cowboys.
